It was an occasion to capture the competitive spirit, get a feel of the great outdoors and reward the winners as the Sankara Nethralaya family got together to celebrate its annual sports day. The beautiful, tree dotted Loyola college ground came alive to the sound of fun and laughter as Sankara Nethralaya employees and their families gathered together on the cool morning of 10th February 2013, in a gaily mood and a splash of bright colours.
While the grownups participated enthusiastically in events such as running, discus, shot-put, walking, relay race, long jump, tower building, garlic peeling and joining clips the children had a field day as they went about kicking a ball, hitting out at marbles and stopping on time for the freeze music. There were lucky draws with winners walking away with prizes in addition to the sporting events. Volunteer referees from various departments adjudged the winners for the various events. It was an exclusive Sankara Nethralaya family event with the entire proceedings from flagging off of events to prize distribution being done by the Heads of the Departments.
There were gifts for every participant in addition to the prizes to the winners in appreciation of their involvement and participation; the fun filled event came to an end by noon after prize distribution and lunch.
